This is a bustling hustling place. Not my cup of tea. I like shopping but not crowds. There are tons of shops, but I didn't get anything in any of the ones I entered. I did get some good ice cream though.

Jammed full of people on a Saturday afternoon, this is the major shopping street, stretches for a long distance with lots of the stores you know, plus some unique ones. I found the crowds overwhelming.

There was a time, long ago, that the Kalverstraat in Amsterdam was the premium shopping street in the Netherlands. The Kalverstraat even was the most expensive street in the Dutch version of Monopoly. But I think that the Kalverstraat has been eclipsed by better shopping...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
